Re: Lubricant

It could also be the formulation of solvents in the orange cleaner I used. There are many different concoctions of orange cleaners on the market while WD-40 and diesel are basically the same wherever you buy them.

Re: Lubricant

I tried one of those orange cleaners and wasn’t happy with it. Sawing through a large oak, the orange stuff didn’t provide much lubrication and worse, it stained my saw blade with a mottled blackish residue that also transferred to my hands. I don’t know if that was caused by just the orange cleaner...

Re: J.Sells handle

This guy looks like he means business, so I'll guess that handle/saw selection was up to the topper.

Re: Help with this Disston one-man

Your etch clearly shows "PATENT GROUND", just like the one in Sandersdwa's post.

Re: Help with this Disston one-man

That's a big one-man. I can't help you with the lineage beyond what you've already discovered.

Re: Help with this Disston one-man

Kind of a tight zoom, what does the rest of the saw look like? Take your pics outside in natural light.

Re: Hammers - swaging and setting

I'm fond of the Atkins #4. Note the short handle. You won't be taking any big swings when setting/swaging teeth.

Re: Simonds No. 113?

Are you sure it's not a "B"? I have an Ohlen-Bishop one man saw with a B stamped on the heel. I've not noticed a similar stamp on my big saws, but O/B copied the number scheme of Simonds and the saws look identical:

Re: Atkins Handles

Atkins appears to have used the same paint on their other tools. NOS hand anvil:
